Tamil Nadu Engineering final year exams: Absentees to write exam from Nov 17

Around 21,000 engineering students who missed the final year online exams due to technical glitches and absentees will sit for supplementary exams from November 17 to 21.

Around 1.5 lakh candidates appeared for the online proctoring test held from September 24 to 29. Of 4 lakh online exams, more than 10,000 students could not complete the exam due to glitches and many others were absent.

After getting permission from state disaster management authority, the university informed the candidates that supplementary online terminal semester exams for all university departments and degree programmes will be held from November 17. It said candidates who had technical issues due to internet connectivity, disruption of power supply and absentee candidates will be accommodated in the supplementary exams.

The 60-minute online tests are likely to have the same 30% weightage as the main exam. The university gave only 30% weightage to the online test while 50% weightage was given to pre-final semester and 20% weightage was given to internal exams. Students had more choices as they had to answer only 30 out of the 40 questions.

There was no announcement on the candidates whose results have been withheld for suspected malpractice cases. The university officials said committee enquiries are on and after going through the evidence they will take a call.
